Hi I am trying to create a search widget by user with multiple hashtags but can’t get it to populate the timeline.
I have clicked the ‘check for tweets’ button, which does display a timeline with the relevant tweets. From this search results timeline, and as a last resort I have selected ‘advanced search’ from the left hand menu, entered my three hashtags into ‘these hashtags’ and user account into ‘from these accounts’, checked ‘include retweets’ and hit search. Then selected ‘embed this search’ from the results header at the top. So theoretically there shouldn’t be any errors in my search term as this has been generated directly from within twitter. But this still gives an empty timeline on the webpage.
The search query is #hashtag1 OR #hashtag2 OR #hashtag3 from:@user include:retweets
I have been successful with a different search query by the same user and a single 4th hashtag but only if the ‘only show top tweets’ is checked.
The successful search query is from:@user #hashtag4 but unfortunately because I have to check ‘top tweets’ the most recent tweets are not being included in the resulting timeline.
edit - we have just created a new tweet with one of the hashtags and this now comes up in the timeline but is the only tweet that displays. How far back does the widget search as it doesn’t seem to display older tweets?
